Pros / You get a 6.4-cubic-foot oven, which is exceptionally large.
Cons / You don’t get a warming drawer with this slide-in range.
Verdict / The Whirlpool WEE745H0FS gives you a really big oven and plenty of features that make food preparation easy.
The Whirlpool WEE745H0FS electric convection slide-in range has an extraordinarily large oven and seven rack positions that give you enough baking room even if the menu calls for a giant turkey, multilayer cakes in assorted pans and a few casseroles. The slide-in stove comes in black, white or stainless steel.
The range’s convection oven is enormous, at 6.4 cubic feet. It comes with three racks and has seven rack positions, so you can raise and lower racks depending on the height needed for particular dishes. You can easily broil foods in it too.
The Whirlpool range boasts some appealing features to ease your cooking chores. A frozen-bake capability lets you skip the oven-preheating step for frozen foods such as vegetables, pies and lasagna. You simply read the food label and plug in the type of food, the desired temperature and the manufacturer’s recommended cooking time, and the oven does what it takes to cook your dish thoroughly. Your food will cook quickly too, since the oven’s convection conversion technology calculates cooking times and temperatures for you.
The oven window is big, letting you clearly see what’s happening inside. The range also provides a Sabbath mode that prevents the oven from shutting itself off and keeps food hot for those who follow Jewish dietary laws and can’t cook on the Sabbath.
You can store plenty of pots and pans in the storage drawer below the oven. The drawer lacks a heating device, however, so you can’t use it for warming. This oven also lacks a temperature probe to check the interior of foods and an oven lock to protect children in the kitchen.
The ceramic glass stovetop has five burners. The two back burners measure 6 inches in diameter, as does the warming area for foods that are already cooked. The heating surface of the two front burners is expandable to suit the pans you are using. One can go from 6 to 9 inches in diameter, and the other expands up to 12 inches. If you’d prefer a gas cooktop, take a look at the Samsung NX58K9500WG/AA.
